  1. Letter a with acute accent missing.


    I have a Thinkpad 540p laptop with Win 10 ver 2004, 64 bit, a UK qwerty keyboard with UK English as the main language and Spanish Espaol as an additional language. Both languages are set to use the UK qwerty keyboard.

    Acute-accented vowels are normally produced using AltGr + [letter]. Using that combination , , and work fine as do , , and . But and do not. AltGr + a and AltGr + A show nothing at all.

    Clicking the corresponding letters in the virtual keyboard produce nothing for A or a but work as expected for the other vowels.

    Using Alt codes Alt + 0225 produces and Alt + 0193 produces as expected.

    What could be causing this oddity?

    :)

    Acute accent key creates double ´´

    So i'm having this super annoying issue where my acute accent key creates double ´´ But only in office 365 and mozilla products.
    What's the normal behaviour of the acute accent key? Normally you press it once and nothing appears on screen as it's awaiting the second input, so you press acute accent and then e to get é etc.

    I've found older threads on win7 forum and other places with no solution.
